Hines Announces Launch of Tax-Advantaged Platform

September 20, 2022

Hines Real Estate Exchange is designed to meet wealth preservation and estate planning needs of qualified investors

(HOUS­TON) – Hines, the glob­al real estate invest­ment, devel­op­ment, and prop­er­ty man­ag­er, announced today the launch of Hines Real Estate Exchange (HREX), a plat­form designed to serve qual­i­fied investors inter­est­ed in tax-advan­taged invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties. The plat­form intends to make 1031 exchange oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able to investors in the form of inter­ests in Delaware Statu­to­ry Trusts (“DSTs”) hold­ing assets sourced from Hines Glob­al Income Trust (“HGIT”). HGIT will have an option to acquire the prop­er­ties held by the DSTs.

The HREX plat­form is intend­ed to pro­vide par­tic­i­pants with a solu­tion to aid in the defer­ment of cap­i­tal gains and oth­er tax­es while pro­vid­ing them with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to diver­si­fy real estate hold­ings through the own­er­ship of insti­tu­tion­al-grade assets.

Hines Real Estate Exchange is a nat­ur­al pro­gres­sion for the firm,” not­ed Alfon­so Munk, CIO of the Amer­i­c­as and pres­i­dent of HGIT. Giv­en the strong mar­ket demand for 1031 exchange prod­ucts and Hines’ vast expe­ri­ence and exper­tise as spon­sor of HGIT, we believe the time is right to launch this initiative.”

Many exchang­ers are eager to cap­i­tal­ize on exist­ing pric­ing envi­ron­ments. A grow­ing num­ber of finan­cial pro­fes­sion­als and their clients are clam­or­ing for these types of plat­forms,” said Mark Ear­ley, CEO of Hines Secu­ri­ties, Inc.

HGIT fea­tures a $3.8 bil­lion port­fo­lio of com­mer­cial real estate invest­ments that is near­ly two-thirds weight­ed toward the indus­tri­al and liv­ing sec­tors. HGIT is diver­si­fied by geog­ra­phy and real estate sec­tors, with a focus on sta­ble assets with strong long-term income potential.
